[ laughter ] >> stephen: yes, huckabee and hucka-me are outraged on behalf of you estrogen soaked females. because obama's not turning out the way you wanted him to. if anything, he's turning out the way we want him to. and that should make you furious that we're delighted that you're angry. [ laughter ] now in terms of diversity, the fi
will say that president bush had 24% women in his appointees. obama is at 35%. women are a 1% of the world -- world --51% of the world population. at the same time, i don't think fox news or most of the corporate media or the republican party have any right to criticize anyone for lack of diversity. >> here's the thing. if mitt romney had been elected we all would have been -- >> john: yes. does it take away from the advances he's had. two female supreme court justices. >> it doesn't take away at all. i think the mistake is holding those things up that are corrective saying hooray, we're done. if they're corrective, we're still ending up baseline at a position where we need to improve on. i think when you're talking about the highest levels of leadership and these photographs that the world sees as representing leadership, they're all men mostly white that does send a message. >> john: i do think we'll see the obama administration responding to this responsibly. >> hooray. >> john: hilda solis is resigning. we'll see if there is a female nominee for labor. i hope they're going to get the m

president obama and governor romney. the issue of how women should be treated in our society while governor romney wanted them placed in binders only to be taken o down for special occasions, the president held the radical point of view they should all be treated equal toy men. the american people heard the two arguments and they seem to have made their choice but it does seem apparent not everyone has accepted said choice. one of those who chose to not listen to the american people, former g.o.p. vice vice president america's sweetheart, paul don't call me eddie munster ryan. ryan is one of 17 congressmen cosponsoring the sanctity of human life act. a bill that believes all humans are sacred, sponsored by all pro death penalty politicians which gives a human zygote all of the privileges of personhood. the republicans who support the bills again support the death penalty so they're pro some life. by the way, if life begins at conception and the drinking age should begin at 20 years three months. a similar personhood bail failed in 2011 and it has also failed in several states including miss

and opened fire. >>> plus, is estrogen the answer for obama or are more women more problems. >>> and breaking news tonight, there is a flu epidemic in america, so why are hospitals overwhelmed, turning people away, and not prepared? let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, a school shooting. officials say a 16-year-old student armed with a shotgun entered a high school classroom in rural california today and opened fire. they say one student he shot is in critical condition tonight. he shot at a second student, but missed. the 16-year-old shooter is in police custody at this hour. our kyung lah is outside taft high school in taft, california. it's about 120 miles northwest of los angeles, as you see there. and kyung, what more can you tell us about the shooter and the possible motive? >> reporter: well, what we know is that first, police say he absolutely targeted those two boys, the first one who he struck, the second one, who he missed. and what we are also learning, from multiple parents and students we've talked to here on the grounds of the h
know, it's not that there are no women now. we still have kathleen sebelius at health and human services and janet napolitano department of homeland security, but the women are getting few and far between, margery, in the second term obama cabinet. >> the talent we're seeing the same in corporate america, and 5% of ceo's women. and he had last term historically most women and minorities, with 22 cabinet seats, 8 women and 9 minorities. now we've heard that hilda solis the first latino woman in a cabinet is stepping down and so, again, this is creating a challenge of who are the women. now, there's two issues people talk about, it's the pipeline, but there are a lot of fabulous women, michelle portnoy, who democrats were looking at undersecretary of defense, hoping she might move to the pentagon and overlooked for that position and susan rice now out of the running. the question, do we have enough bench of women. the cabinet positions, it's long hours, my intern went over to the white house and works 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and for a woman would children, how do we work them so women ca
bring me binders full of women. maybe president obama -- we made fun of mitt romney when he said it. maybe president obama needs some binders full of women and by the way, that leaves kathleen sebelius in the cabinet. and they've said kathleen sebelius is staying but nobody's said anything about janet napolitano in the cabinet. is she staying or isn't she staying? so the president's opened himself up to some criticism here. charlie rangel jumped on it yesterday. he was asked on msnbc, how does this look? does very a diversity problem? >> it's embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney and we were very hard on mitt romney with his women binders. i kind of think there's no excuse when it is the second term. the first term, you can say people got to know who is around that's qualified in order to get this job. >> bill: so i ask the question to you does the president have a little problem here with diversity? 1-866-55-press. by the way compounding the problem, the president's now looking for looking for looking for a new chief of staff. everybody reports there
donough and ronald klain. let me get your reaction to this. >> barack obama is black. >> some of the president's top advisers are women, valerie jarrett, half of the white house staff is women. that's been a diverse cabinet and white house staff. what we're experiencing now is a communications problem more than an actual diversity problem. >> rich, is this an optics problem? >> let me agree with bill. that this is -- this is a very difficult job to fill because you have to be so much in tune with the president. if you want to start add up blacks and womens and christians, that's fine, but the chief of staff role is not the place to do that because you have to be in tune with the president all the time. what burton was saying -- bob, i called you bill. what bill was saying was exactly right, that you have to just have somebody that you can trust, you can go to bed -- president go to bed at 11:00 knowing the chief of staff will still be there at 2:30 the next morning. >> here's the other side of the argument. if you buy what rich is saying, you have to disagree with what we've heard from charlie range

in terms of absence of women in the now famous picture from the oval office where obama is surrounded by senior staff and all male except for the leg, barely visible of valerie jarrett. you know, charlie rangel went on to saying i thought was really telling. he said it is a harvard problem. you just know certain people from your college or background and those are people you trust and elevate. so there's a lack of diversity in terms of women but also a lack of diversity in terms of minority. i think most glarerying, lack of diversity lack of people come from anything but that harvard guy background. martha: that is interesting. margaret carlson made a similar argument in her column. basically said he was being lazy. he was spending time with john kerry during the campaign so he picked him. he likes chuck hagel and he picked him. that may be vast oversimplification. margaret carlson made the same point. mary katherine, it would bother me more if i president hadn't done a thorough job thinking this through than whether it was women, minorities white people, whatever they are. >> if char
